Happy Tuesday!!


Good afternoon everyone!!! It’s been a while since I’ve been on here. My life started to get VERY interesting this month. I just got back from my first visit to Denver, CO! I will be posting something tomorrow describing this wonderful & accelerating experience. (I will give you a hint: one story involves mountain lions and the other involves a baby black bear) 😱😱 

Thank God for his covering and favor! Lol Both stories could’ve went south without his hedge of protection. Don’t worry, I took a lot of amazing shots while I was there.  I pray that you all are doing GREAT and feeling wonderful!!

Stay blessed and keep your heads up!! Enjoy the rest of your day. ❤️❤️

*P.S: Both photos are mine, I just didn’t have time to watermark them! 😉

Thankful In The Midst of Suffering 

“The Bible encourages us to always be thankful. That’s easy when God answers prayer and delivers us from problems. But it isn’t always easy when things go wrong. So how can we remain thankful in the midst of suffering? 

We have two choices to make. The first is to praise God in spite of what’s going on in our lives. Or another way to say that is, in the midst of our troubles and hardships, we can rejoice over the things that are not wrong in our lives. 

The second choice is to ask, “God, what can I learn from this? What do You want to teach me through this so that I may be closer to You and rejoice more fully in Your goodness?” Those are not easy questions, and the answers are often hard to hear. 

Sometimes we can only grasp the important lessons in our lives when we go through difficult times. Thank God that the hard times will lead you to better things. 
In the midst of suffering, give thanks to God and trust Him to lead you to bigger and better things. 

Prayer Starter
: God, I’m thankful for Your love and Your presence. Forgive me for grumbling when things go wrong, and remind me of how many things go right in my life. I want to rejoice in You always.”
